Palenque Pyramids in Mexico
Palenque Ruins in The Jungles of Mexico
Palenque is my favourite of all of the Mexican archeological sites: less touristy than Chichen Itza or Teotihuacan Pyramids, near Mexico City and in a wonderful jungle setting just north of Guatemala. Monkeys wooping in the distance and the beautiful sights and sounds of the jungle make this an excellent place to visit while in Mexico.

Palenque Ruins and Pyramids
Paleque Ruins with their excellent Jungle setting were my favourite. Starting from the main entrance we walked round the main plaza, then down through the jungle to lower exit, back up again through jungle to the rest of the site, howler monkeys and other jungle-life making lots of noise all around us. Fantastic. An absolutely beautiful setting. There is also a small museum at the ruins.
